Armor, Art, and Aardvark

Come join us April 27th for our Armor, Art and Aardvark (A.A.A.) Day!

It’s a day full of classes, art, and fun! The main feature of this event will be Glass Bead Making classes presented by the Barony of Darkwater’s Glass Guild Leader, Thyri Bersi. These classes will be held throughout the day! However, the day isn’t only for Glass Bead Making, so don’t forget to bring any projects you’re currently working on to share with those in attendance. If there are specific things that you need assistance with, please message me and we will do our best to assist you or help you connect with others that can. The event will be held from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. and will be held at 5510 Bailey Rd, Mulberry FL 33860.

*The Intro into Glass beads class must be taken by anyone who has not previously taken the class. The 2-hour class covers all safety information required to use Darkwater’s equipment as well the basics for beginning to work with glass beads. The 2-hour Intro class is half lecture and half hands on at a cost of five-dollars. Each hour class/open torch after you have taken the intro class is ten-dollars. This is to cover the cost of gas and glass provided by the Barony of Darkwater and is not for profit.
